International Character Posters for Peter Berg's Battleship
03.02.12 by BJSprecher
While the domestic poster campaign for director Peter Berg's (Hancock) new sci-fi movie, Battleship, focuses more on the "David and Goliath" nature of the conflict between invading alien forces and the U.S. Navy, the international campaign seems to be more about selling the names — or faces — attached to the movie. Last week, the first "character poster" debuted, putting Canadian actor Taylor Kitsch front-and-center. Now, several new international character posters have turned up online that feature supporting actors Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard and Rihanna (sorry, Brooklyn Decker, guess you don't rate), and one of the "Regents" that have come to Earth to build some sort of a power plant in our oceans.
Battleship is based on the classic Milton Bradley/Hasbro board game. The screenplay was written by Jon and Erich Hoeber (Whiteout), with revisions by Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Rounders). Josh Pence, Peter MacNicol, Gary Grubbs and Tadanobu Asano also star.
